City Travel in Cardiff

City Travel in Cardiff From buses to bicycles, there are many different ways to get around Cardiff and its surrounding towns. So to make sure you don’t miss out during your stay in Europe’s youngest capital city, we’ve put together a guide of the best ways of travelling around Cardiff...

There is a good bus service linking the city to the surrounding areas, so whether your hotel is in the suburbs or you fancy seeing some of the sights outside Cardiff there is sure to be a bus that can take you there.

The main bus terminus is the Central Bus Station [map] on Wood Street, near the Millennium Stadium, but there are plenty of other bus stops around the city centre. For more information on Cardiff’s bus service call 0870 608 2608 or log on to www.cardiffbus.com

Cardiff is also very cycling friendly with much of the city and its surrounding area suitable for bike riding. To rent a bike you could go to Taff Trail Cycle Hire [map] at Pontcanna Fields, and once you’ve got your bike you’ll be directed to the scenic Taff Trail, which starts at the Pierhead at Cardiff Bay. You can then follow the trail along Cardiff’s glorious river for as far as you want to go.

If you fancy riding a little further a field you’ll be pleased to know that Wales has some of the quietest roads in Britain, with many routes specially created for cyclists.

For those who want to see all the sights during their stay it may be worthwhile hopping on one of the city tour buses that take you past most of Cardiff’s top attractions. Guide Friday operate open top bus tours that depart from Cardiff’s Central Bus Station daily from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

The route takes in many of the city’s monuments including Cardiff Castle and the Pierhead Building. Tourists can hop on and off at their leisure as there are numerous stops around the city. For more information, telephone Guide Friday on 029 2038 4291.

Of course the best way to see Cardiff is on foot as the city is relatively flat and easy to explore, but if you would rather rest your legs then opt for the door-to-door service of a taxi.

Taxis are very easy to find, especially in the busy shopping areas, and most cab fares within Cardiff city centre range from £4 to £8 for each journey.

The most prominent taxi ranks are at the train and bus stations, and at St. David's Hall, but you can get your hotel or restaurant to book a taxi on your behalf. All of Cardiff’s major cab firms operate 24 hours a day.

Selected taxi companies in the city centre area:

Capital Cabs (029) 2077 7777
Black Cabs (029) 2034 3343
Premier Cabs (029) 2055 5555
